Here is todays project as I continue to use up the tires and rims i have had sitting in the workshop for over two years. I will get this one sanded and painted this weekend and Monday start on number five.

  I bought all these tires for trailer projects and it will seem great in two weeks to finally have six lawn trailers and no tires. :thumbs:

  When the time comes to sell my little tractors I can bundle a blade and a trailer with each one. :smilewink:

   For now I'm not selling anything , instead I check everyday for number 12 , 11 tractors is such a odd number :dancingbanana:

Thanks :thumbs:

   Here is a picture of the painted lawn cart. I used up two more tires and rims but the bad news is yesterday I found a great deal on two more :D   

   I also bought tractor number 12 yesterday :wallbanging:

      A even dozen is a great number to stop buying garden tractors. So this is my last one ever !!!!

 I'll post a picture of it tonight once it is in the shop .

Why stop at a dozen? How about a bakers dozen?

Today I pushed the 110 round fender tractor off to the side and cleaned the shop. I got another set of rims painted yellow and tomorrow I will get going on the next mini trailer for my jd train.

  No. 13 Bolens 940 frame steer won't be delivered for another week or two so i should get this next trailer done by then.

I ordered a Handy 1000 lb air lift with 12 in. extensions . It should make it much easier to work on all my projects. I also ordered two manual tire changers . One for small center rims and one for larger center rims. With 13 tractors and 5 trailers that is over 60 tires to keep inflated.

That's a very nice lift. How wide of a vehicle can it lift up?

That would be nice for atvs and sxs if it would handle up to 1000lbs

With the extensions it is 48 in. wide so great for atvs and garden tractors.
